thrifted patchwork quilt

a friend of mine gave me a thrifted patchwork quilt top that she wanted me to turn into a quilt. the patchwork was gorgeous and was made by lots of different fabrics that somehow all worked together.
i finally finished it this week (she only gave it to me like 2 or 3 years ago, oops). here are some pics.

the patchwork was 100% hand sewn. i felt bad using my machine to finish it, but i didn't want this quilt to take another 3 years.
 but i do hand bind the binding. i picked a bright color for the binding to make it pop.
